Celebrating a Year of Success: 2023 in Review


As 2023 draws to a close, we’re taking a moment to look back on a year of significant milestones and forward to an exciting future. This year wasn’t just another year for us – it marked a significant milestone as we celebrated our 30th birthday! 🎉 This has been a year of community, growth, and innovation, driven by our commitment to stay ahead in the evolving world of specialist door and dock loading systems.


Reflections: A Year of Community, Growth and Innovation

Our journey over the past three decades has been incredible, but 2023 has been a standout year, marked by significant achievements:

Expanded Local Manufacturing: We’ve boosted our local manufacturing capabilities, leading to significantly shorter lead times for our custom products. This expansion is a direct response to your needs and preferences.

Introduced Advanced Technologies: We bought world-leading air door technology to New Zealand, with our HCR Air Door and Frigo 2 Air Door, marking a significant advancement in the cold storage industry, and introduced hygiene doors like our condensation proof door, the Ulti Roll Clean, and bug-proof Ulti Roll Bug Shield Door.

Exceptional Customer Satisfaction: Our dedication to serving you has been rewarded with a 98% satisfaction rate in our recent customer survey. This is not just a number but a testament to the trust you place in us as your long-term partner.

Community Engagement and Partnership: Aligning with our values of caring and community engagement, we’ve proudly partnered with Kiwi Harvest to help combat food waste and hunger in New Zealand, and our team members enthusiastically contributed their time to various charities and community services, demonstrating our commitment to making a positive impact.


Looking Ahead: Embracing Industry Trends

As we look ahead to 2024, we’re excited about the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead, and energised by the evolving trends in our industry:

Sustainability Focus: The industry is increasingly prioritising sustainability, aligning economic efficiency with environmental responsibility​​, driving innovations in the cold storage space like the HCR Air Door and Frigo 2 Air.

Home Grown Manufacturing: You’ve made it clear you value local manufacturing, for the fast turnaround times and enhanced quality it brings. Responding to your preference, we’ll be expanding our capabilities further, fostering Kiwi ingenuity and supporting our local economy.

Integrated Dock Management and IoT: Cloud-based systems and IoT technologies along with AI and machine learning, are transforming warehouse and freight management, particularly in energy efficiency, and site productivity​​.

Workforce Optimisation: Addressing global staffing challenges, the industry is turning to automated solutions to enhance efficiency​​.


Holiday Closure and Support

As we pause to be with family over this festive season, please note our holiday closure times. We’ll be closing our doors on Thursday, 21st December 2023, and reopening on 8th January 2024. Rest assured; our after-hours team is ready to support any urgent needs during this period. We’re committed to ensuring both your peace of mind and our team’s well-being.

Thank you for being a part of our journey in 2023. Your support and feedback have been invaluable. As we embrace the new year, we’re excited to continue this journey with you, innovating and strengthening our bonds.
